Rainbow Sampler – Block 1

Posted on 30th April 2019

I’ve been piecing together quilt blocks for the Rainbow Sampler which will be made at classes starting back in September 2019.
This is the 1st block – the Eight Pointed Star.

The 2nd image shows where this block will be placed on this Sampler Quilt. I’ll share a block each day until I’ve posted them all 😉
If you have already booked a place on this class, your Fabric Requirements will be emailed out tonight!

As well as this sampler, I’m also working on the workshop pieces just now. I have both the Trip Around the World and the Christmas in July quilt tops done and I will quilt these shortly. The 6ply socks are about 50% finished – I’m on the 2nd sock. I’ve had the most amazing idea for the Dresden Patchwork Day – I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the finished piece turns out as good as the idea in my head!

A Long Overdue Update!

Posted on 7th April 2019

It’s been quite some time since my last update – it’s taken me a wee while to dust off the cobwebs and figure out how to work this blog again.

I’ve updated the information on the following pages:

  • Workshops 2019
  • Quilting Classes 2019
  • Diary Dates

I will be back each week to add more information (and photos) about the upcoming workshops to be held during Spring/Summer 2019 and also the fortnightly classes that will be starting again in September 2019.

Please note: if you have tried recently to use the contact form here on my blog, unfortunately due to technical issues I will not have received your message; sorry about that. The form is now working again, so please re-submit your query if you would like to get in touch.

New Quilting Classes for Autumn 2017 & Spring 2018

Posted on 4th September 2017

My new quilting classes will be starting on Thursday 7th September 2017.

I will be holding classes on one Wednesday evening and two Thursday mornings, running fortnightly.
There will be no Thursday afternoon class, as my weekly craft group meets in Prestwick Community Centre at this time (anyone wishing to come along to the craft group will be more than welcome).

For more information about my quilting classes please have a look at the Quilting Classes page.

Quilting Classes

As many of you will have heard already, Sheila (aka Bluepatch Quilter) is retiring from teaching her quilting classes this year. She has asked me to take over from her, so from September 2016, I’ll be teaching the quilting classes in Prestwick Community Centre.   The classes I will be doing initially will be aimed more at beginners and advanced beginners.

If you want more information, you can pop along to the Bluepatch Quilter Open Day on Sunday 3rd April 2016, which is to be held at Alloway Public Hall – NOT in Prestwick! (Google Maps).  I hope to bring along and display samples of the quilts that we’ll be making in the new classes in September.

There will be more information on how to book classes coming soon.

Craft Group

In the meantime, I’ll also be starting a new craft group.  You are all welcome to come along to my weekly group with your favourite handcraft for cake, a cuppa and conversation while we work on our knitting, crocheting, quilting, sewing, cross stitch and embroidery.

Here are the details:

  • Every Thursday starting 7th April 2016 from 12 noon to 2pm
  • In Prestwick Community Centre (Google Maps)
  • Open to anyone interested in knitting, crocheting, cross stitching, sewing, quilting and embroidery
  • As the name suggests there will be cake (free!) to go along with our crafting 🙂
  • Admission is £2 per session, payable on the day.
